Explanation of the Book:

The next psychological thriller from the bestselling author of The Good Neighbors... Yes. The word that brought me such great joy and, eventually, such heartbreak. When Mark asked me out for the first time, I didn't have to think twice. I said, "Yes." When he asked me to marry him just a year later, the answer came as easily as the breath that followed it. "Yes." When he asked me to keep his secret, my response came too quickly. "Yes." Now, in front of a judge and jury, I'll be asked the question I never anticipated. "Did you know who the killer is?" The answer is second nature by now. "Yes." "Modglin's most complex, layered, emotional, dark, and shocking book yet." -Emerald O'Brien, Author of The Knox and Sheppard Mysteries

And neither was attending a party that was crashed by the cops just minutes after they arrived. Or spending an entire night saying "yes" to every crazy, fun thing they could think of. But then Matt leaves town, breaking Ella's heart. And when he shows up a year later—wanting to relive the night that brought them together—Ella isn't sure whether Matt's worth a second chance. Or if re-creating the past can help them create a different future.

Explanation of the Book:

On the fictional morning of June 16, 1904—Bloomsday, as it has come to be known—Mr. Leopold Bloom set out from his home at 7 Eccles Street and began his day’s journey through Dublin life in the pages of James Joyce’s novel of the century, Ulysses. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of Bloomsday, Yes I Said Yes I Will Yes offers a priceless gathering of what’s been said about Ulysses since the extravagant praise and withering condemnation that first greeted it upon its initial publication. From the varied appraisals of such Joyce contemporaries as William Butler Yeats (“It is an entirely new thing. . . . He has certainly surpassed in intensity any novelist of our time”) and Virginia Woolf (“Never did I read such tosh”), to excerpts from Tennessee Williams’ term paper “Why Ulysses is Boring” and assorted wit, praise, parody, caricature, photographs, anecdotes, bon mots, and reminiscence, this treasury of Bloomsiana is a lively and winning tribute to the most famous day in literature.

Explanation of the Book:

When she was just a child, Heather’s life was altered by an accident that all but destroyed her internal organs. The doctors gave her no chance—but with God’s grace, she proved them wrong. When they said she would never walk, she defied them again. And though they insisted she could never have children, she did. When others said no—God said yes. More than a story of suffering and survival, Heather’s life is a testament to the power of faith. From the first decisive moments after the accident, Heather and her mother were able to give their fear and panic to God, and trust Him to act as a source of strength in their lives. With her husband DeWayne and her daughter Mackenzie—the two greatest miracles in her life—Heather has found great joy, and many reasons to give praise. This is her amazing and inspiring true story.

Explanation of the Book:

The romantic escapades of the irrepressible Wylder sisters continue in Isabella Bradford’s fun, charming, and breathtakingly passionate series—as the wildest of the Wylders turns an arranged marriage into a game of desire to tame a wayward duke. Notorious for her free-spirited antics, Lady Elizabeth Wylder revels in attention—but not the sort that leaves her humiliated when her future husband, the Duke of Hawkesworth, fails to appear for their much-anticipated first introduction. So when a chance encounter leads to a sizzling kiss with a dangerously handsome stranger, she nearly succumbs. The shock of finally meeting her betrothed only to come face to face with her rakish would-be seducer inspires fury—and fans the flames of a fire that both Lizzie and the Duke acknowledge is a most agreeable way to start a marriage. In her husband’s arms, Lizzie knows she has found love. But is the passion that accompanies endless nights of erotic discovery enough to persuade a duke whose scandalous lineage and lifestyle prevent him from giving his heart completely?

Explanation of the Book:

If God asked your permission before a blessing or hardship, how would you answer? Most would say yes to the blessing and no to the hardship, especially if it involved our children. Thankfully, God does not ask; rather, he gives us the gift of hindsightto look back and say yes to the hardship that made us who we are. Struggle produces more strengths than weaknesses, more courage than fear, and more resolve than complacency. Bookstores are filled with incredible stories of courage and overcoming insurmountable odds. No one wants to read about a person who was born, went to school, made average grades, got an average job, had an average family and died an average death concluding with an average funeral. We probably know lots of people like that, but there are no books about them. No, we want the stories of the average overcomers. We want to hear about the men, women, and families, just like ours, who have faced their own Goliath and won, because we want to believe, we too can muster the umph to make it through our own difficulties. I Would Have Said Yes chronicles an average family with above average determination, who are blessed by an incomprehensible and awesome God to see extraordinary miraclesone day at a time.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Ten years in the works, a masterpiece of reportage, this is the definitive account of the Columbine massacre, its aftermath, and its significance, from the acclaimed journalist who followed the story from the outset. "The tragedies keep coming. As we reel from the latest horror . . ." So begins a new epilogue, illustrating how Columbine became the template for nearly two decades of "spectacle murders." It is a false script, seized upon by a generation of new killers. In the wake of Newtown, Aurora, and Virginia Tech, the imperative to understand the crime that sparked this plague grows more urgent every year. What really happened April 20, 1999? The horror left an indelible stamp on the American psyche, but most of what we "know" is wrong. It wasn't about jocks, Goths, or the Trench Coat Mafia. Dave Cullen was one of the first reporters on scene, and spent ten years on this book-widely recognized as the definitive account. With a keen investigative eye and psychological acumen, he draws on mountains of evidence, insight from the world's leading forensic psychologists, and the killers' own words and drawings-several reproduced in a new appendix. Cullen paints raw portraits of two polar opposite killers. They contrast starkly with the flashes of resilience and redemption among the survivors. Expanded with a New Epilogue

Explanation of the Book:

How should we talk about desire, power and equality in the wake of the #Me Too debate? For Carolin Emcke, bestselling author and winner of the German Peace Prize, the debate demonstrates one thing above all: a conversation about abuse and sexuality has emerged that can no longer be stifled. Too many questions remain unanswered: which images and concepts shape our imaginings of desire and revulsion? How is violence exposed and obstructed? How do the norms and structures into which men, women and those in between must fit get constructed? What gets hushed up, and who remains powerless? How can the plurality of desire and sexuality be expressed, without sacrificing their intricacies? By interrogating her own experiences as well as social practices, music and literature, Emcke demonstrates the enduring complexity of the relationship between sexuality and truth.
